Crazy Little Thing Called Love

What is love? defines love as 18 different things, how is that even possible? Here are the first 3. Many involve sex (making love) or use the word love in the defintion (I hate when they do that)

–noun 1. a profoundly tender, passionate affection for another person.
2. a feeling of warm personal attachment or deep affection, as for a parent, child, or friend.
3. sexual passion or desire.

There are many kinds of love. There is love for an object such as an ipod, computer, basketball, necklace, cell phone, etc. Most of these things hold very little value (money wise), but either fill us with pleasure, or hold a special place in our hearts.

Love can be for a belief or a concept. People love religon. People love ideas.
Love is a concept, so in a sence, people love love.

There is Love for people/groups of people that we will probably never meet because they are famous, or dead (or both). This love can be obsessive and the most "far off" from "real love" but it's still important all the same. Some people only have a band, or a baseball team, or a hero to believe in.

There is love for family (or the group of people in the place called home). Families come in all shapes and sizes, but a good one shows that they love a child no matter what. Sometimes it might seem like another member is being "like totally unfair right now. I need to go to the concert, I don't care if it's a school night, Bobby's mom is letting him go!". In the end this group of people will always remain in your heart, and no matter how much hate there is, there will always be love there. How can you stop loving someone who changed your diapers for three years? Who went above and beyond to try to meet your every need? I know I can't.

Then there are friends, the ever changing family that you choose. Some friends like eachother because they both like the same things, while others are attracted to eachother, while others, having nothing in common, still manage to love everything about the other. Friends offer a nice escape from the family. Friends are someone you can complain to about how much life sucks and no one understands, when your family is to tired to listen. Friends love eachother in all sorts of ways, so they fall under all 3 defintions (in some cases). Sometimes friends get attracted to eachother and decide they would like to make a vow of their love (marrage), then start their own unit of love. This is one of the most powerful kinds of love. Stating that you love someone else so much that you are willing to do anything with them for the rest of your life. That you will be there for them no matter what, and support them in where ever life takes them. And while doing all this, maybe have/adopt a child or more.

Love can happen between anyone, regardless of differences of similarities

Love is knowing that all hope is not lost.
Love is a reason for living
Love is always having some place to go back to
Love is an undescribable human emotion that will never be fully understood
Love is _____

One thing love is not is a finite definition.

"All you need is love, love, love is all you need"
